March Wholesale Prices Rose 0.2% - Less Than Expected


In today's dynamic market environment, staying informed about economic indicators is crucial for making well-informed trading decisions.


Here's a quick overview of the latest developments:


Wholesale Prices: The producer price index (PPI) increased by 0.2% in March, slightly below the consensus estimate. However, on a 12-month basis, PPI rose by 2.1%, indicating ongoing inflationary pressures in the economy.


Market Impact: While the PPI data didn't cause significant market movement, it provides valuable insights into inflation trends. Understanding these trends can help traders anticipate shifts in monetary policy and market sentiment.



Jobless Claims: Initial filings for jobless benefits fell to 211,000, signaling ongoing strength in the labor market. However, continuing claims increased slightly, highlighting the need for continued monitoring of employment data.


Federal Reserve's Outlook: The latest economic data, including the CPI release from Wednesday, has raised questions about the Federal Reserve's future policy actions. With inflation running above the Fed's target, traders are adjusting their expectations for interest rate cuts.


What It Means for Traders: As traders, it's essential to stay nimble and adapt to changing market conditions. Keep a close eye on economic indicators, central bank statements, and geopolitical developments to navigate the markets effectively.

S&P 500 Analysis for Friday: April 12, 2024


Ready to chart your course for success in the markets? It's time to dive into the latest technical analysis insights and uncover potential trading opportunities for Friday.


As we gear up for the end of the trading week, let's take a closer look at key support and resistance levels to guide our trading decisions . . .


For Friday, keep an eye on the crucial support level at 5222.50.


This level has the potential to contain selling pressure and set the tone for market sentiment going into next week. If we can hold above this level, our sights are set on a 1 - 2 week objective at 5431.25.


On the upside, watch out for resistance around 5297.50.


A close above this level could signal a bullish breakout, paving the way for our target of 5431.25 by the end of next week. This level is crucial as it indicates strong buying pressure when tested, offering a significant upside potential into May activity.


However, if we see a downside move and close below 5222.50, it may open the door for further downside towards 5027.00 - 5059.50 within 1 - 2 weeks.



Despite potential challenges, these levels are capable of absorbing selling pressure through May activity and beyond.


Friday's trading session presents both opportunities and challenges for retail traders.


By staying vigilant and keeping a close watch on key levels, we can navigate the market waves with confidence and capitalize on potential profit opportunities.


Stay tuned for real-time updates as we navigate the markets together!


Happy Trading,
